Firebird embedded client/server library
Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL-99 features that
runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms. Firebird offers
excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful language support
for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used on production systems
under a variety of names since 1981.
This package contains libfbembed - the embedded client/server library for
It can work with remote Firebird servers (either super-server or classic) via
TCP connections, in the same way libfbclient does.
Contrary to libfbclient, libfbembed is not thread-safe.
When working with local database libfbembed works directly with the database
file without the need of a separate server process. It needs a separate lock
manager -- fb_lock_mgr -- which is in firebird2.1-classic package.
If you are in doubt, you most probably need libfbclient2, instead of this
